I was challenged by FOXYBLOGS to come up with my TOP 5 Summer Reads ( 6/21/14-9/21/2014). This was not easy, because there were so many great books released this summer. But, I think I came up with a good list. They are in no particular order – and I was assured that series’ counted as one pick which is a good thing, because you can see, I actually have 10 books for my Top 5 🙂
Gratefully, I was allowed honorable mentions, because when I looked at my 5 and 6 star rated books on GR for the time frame above, I had 11 with those ratings, but I read 20 books and many were 4 1/2 stars. So to be able to narrow them down to 5 was difficult!
But, I have never been known to be a rule follower, and that time frame just didn’t work for me. My “summer” actually begins when my children get out of school in May. 🙂 And because I read this book outside of that time frame, I can’t include it up there ^, BUT I am going to include it along with an explanation. This summer we took a vacation to the Bahamas (I want to go back!) But I was filled with anxiety about going. I texted a friend (Foxyblogs) about it, I wanted to figure a way to delay the trip, change the date, move it! You see, the release date for Infinity + One was going to be while we were there. I was told there was limited internet access and that meant I might not be able to get the book on my iPad! Once we got there, I happily discovered I could purchase internet for our room for $150.00 during our stay. I told my husband our children needed something to keep them occupied while they were in their rooms since we disconnected their data and calling plans while we were out of the country. :)) Infinity+One may be the most expensive book I have ever purchased, but it was well worth it!
